Blackstone Valley Music’s popular Band Camp Program engages students at a variety of skill levels for a week of intense rehearsal culminating in an in-house concert. Facilitated by Mark Mandeville and James Briand, the band will choose songs, name their band, lead focused rehearsals, and consider important factors of live performance such as stage presence, improvisation, playing in the moment, and addressing the audience.

Past Band Camp Groups
Back for its second year, Blackstone Valley Music is proud to host a summer ensemble designed to keep school band students engaged with music and their instruments over the summer break. The group will meet every Tuesday and Thursday July 17th - 28th from 10AM - 12PM, culminating into a concert Friday the 28th. The ensemble will be led once again by our clarinet teacher, Raianne Richards, as well as our band camp director and lesson administrator, James Briand. At least one year of band experience is required to enroll in this program.
Please call or email with any questions about sign-ups and/or pricing.
